From Cotton To Shirt, In 4 Gifs
After months of reporting and thousands of miles of travel, our T-shirt project is live. Check it out: planetmoney.com/shirt.
Thanks to everyone who ordered a shirt and followed us along the way. Please accept these four gifs as a small token of our gratitude.
1. The cotton for our shirts came from the Mississippi Delta.
2. It was spun into yarn in factories in Indonesia (men’s shirt) and Colombia (women’s shirt).
3. The yarn was knitted into fabric, dyed and sewn in Bangladesh (men’s shirt) and Colombia (women’s shirt).
4. The shirts were printed in Brooklyn.
P.S. If you want a second-generation Planet Money T-shirt, you can buy one here.
